The Company Separeco Srl was founded in 2005 by a group of people that had 10 years of experience in environmentally friendly processes that use CO2 as a solvent and in the cultivation of photosynthetic microorganisms. Our business project is to develop high-tech and environmentally friendly systems. The project's objective was to create a company able to fit into an economic sector that is able to combine high-tech technologies and new products for markets with high dynamism.
The investment in R & D accounts for Separeco is a fundamental choice, certainly in contrast in Italy with the common tendency to delegate this function only to public institutions (Universities, CNR, CRA, etc..) but which responds to a model widely used in the U.S. (eg Dedicated Biotechnology Companies), Japan
and northern Europe. To do this, the only investment in equipment and tools are not enough as the simple addition of scientific expertise, even authoritative: we need to create, within a specific business plan, the ability to translate the "idea" in the process technology or innovative product that can open new markets.
